According to rumors, M$ wants to grab GitHub for around $2B.
More than $100 millions a year in profits that GitHub was supposedly making was not enough for them.
Owning majority of the PC users was not enough for MS. I guess, they want to own all the good software developers and Open Source code, including TrueOS repos
Now, I know why my $100 dollars feels like 1 penny in the global business marketplace.
GitHub was last valued at $2 billion back in 2015, and Microsoft is paying $7.5 billion in stock for the company in a deal that should close later this year.
And, how much of the $7.5B will GitHub share with devs that populated GitHub with Open Source projects and code?
I don’t understand one thing; how is business, that makes $100+ million a year, worth $7.5B?
